CHAPTER ONE
Introduction
Background Information
Poultry farming is the practice of raising domesticated
birds such as chicken, turkey, duck, geese, pheasant,
guinea fowl etc. as a subcategory of animal husbandry
for the purpose of producing meat and egg for food and
other by-products such as droppings, feathers as raw materials for industries. Poultry refers to domesticated
birds that are reared majorly for meat and egg and
sometimes, other by-products. In Agricultural resource management study (ARMS) formally known as farm cost
and returns survey (FCRS) poultry include oestriches
and other game birds but most operation raise only one
specie of poultry for single purpose e.g. farmers keep
laying hento produce egg for human consumption or for
breeding purpose. Some raise starter, pullets and others
concentrate on raising chickens or turkey for meet
production. (U.S. Department of Commerce, 1954).

The three most common species of poultry are
domesticated fowl, duck and turkey; few breeds of
chicken are Andalusian, Orpintons which are made up of
white, black and buff orpingtons, leghorns, Plymouth
Rock etc. breeds of turkey include Norfolk turkey which
is black with spotted white wing, Cambridge turkey, a
bronze grey bird larger and leggier than the Norfolk.
Breeds of duck; buff orpington duck, pelkin duck also
known as the island duck, Australian spotted, American
black etc. (Noris 2005). Since domestic fowl accounts for
over 90% of the total number of poultry across the globe, more emphasis will be placed on domesticated fowl in
the course of this study.
